Israeli occupation forces stormed the refugee camp of Tulkarm, killed six Palestinians and injured many more.

Six Palestinians were killed, and many others were injured, on Wednesday morning, when an Israeli army drone bombed a house in the refugee camp of Tulkarm, north of the occupied West Bank, the official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.

WAFA correspondent and local sources confirmed that six Palestinians were killed. They were identified as Rami Al-Shomali, Uday Al-Zayyat, Ahmad Salit, Mohammad Abu Anin, Bassam Al-Shafi’i, and Firas Awad Balouneh.

At midnight on Tuesday, the occupation forces stormed the city and camp of Tulkarm, sparking confrontations.

WAFA correspondent reported that large forces from the occupation army stormed the city of Tulkarm from its western side, passing through Al-Sika and Nablus Streets, and around Ektaba roundabout to the east, and deployed its snipers on the roofs of several buildings in the area, as an Israeli army drone flew all over the city and its camp.

Later, the Israeli occupation army declared the Tulkarm camp and its surrounding areas military zones and declared a curfew there, especially Hanoun Square, Al-Rabay’ah, and Al-Balawneh.

Israeli army vehicles were stationed at the entrances to the camp as two bulldozers broke their way into the area, while violent confrontations took place.

An Israeli drone reportedly bombed with two missiles a house in Al-Balawneh neighborhood in the Tulkarm camp.

Meanwhile, the occupation forces imposed a siege on the Thabet Thabet Governmental Hospital in the city of Tulkarm, which obstructed ambulances from transferring the injured to receive treatment.

Eyewitnesses also reported that the Israeli army chased the ambulances, obstructed their work, and prevented them from moving freely.

The Israeli aggression against the city and camp of Tulkarm caused great destruction to the streets, infrastructure, and citizens’ property.
